There are no upcoming events.
Today, several months of research, and time consuming worry and filling out paperwork paid off! Today, CFT Inc. (tradename Coups For Troops) received our 501c3 status!!!!
We love getting information from our Donors! The Sandy Creek Baptist Church Children’s Ministry is our special Donor this time. Here’s the note we received from their coordinator: “Our children’s ministry group range from 2 years old to 5th grade. They enjoyed cutting coupons. They couldn’t believe we were sending them all the way to Japan!!!” So precious! Love to see children helping others, especially our military families!

Pictured here are women who reside at The Village at Orchard Ridge (formerly Coeur d’Alene Homes Assisted Living/Memory Care) in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. A group of about 15 ladies meet several times a month to clip coupons for the Coups for Troops organization and have been doing so for almost three years. This time together is a win-win—for these residents and their “adopted” military families. The women spend time together visiting with friends while clipping coupons, an activity which brings them great purpose and joy. Highlights are when they receive messages and pictures from their adopted military families, who say how much they enjoy receiving packages and notes from their friends “back home.”
Thank you so much The Village @ Orchard Ridge for your support of Coups For Troops & our military families!! They currently support two military families each month!
Stephanie Lener, and her husband Steve, has worked so hard for Coups For Troops over the years. She stepped up when the original founder needed someone to help, she worked to improve and grow the program in so many ways. She has sent emails until her fingers ached, cut coupons, checked expiration dates until her eyes crossed, and smiled each time a package was sent to a military family. The hours she devoted have been incredible and the work she has done has touched so many families. Steve became our “official Tech Guy” by working on the database and website to keep us moving forward.
Because of their work, Coups For Troops has reached new heights in the number of people we can help, which is why this announcement comes with a heavy heart. Effective Nov 3rd, Stephanie and Steve have decided it’s time to step back. Due to job changes, Steve has relocated and Stephanie will soon be doing so as well. We understand their decision and we are saddened to see them leave the Admin Staff, but of course, we wish them the very best.

It has come to our attention that someone has created a GoFundMe account and is using our logo to request postage funds. This person is NOT associated with Coups For Troops, as a volunteer or Donor. She is sending coupons to PX stores, which we do not do. Our coupons arrive to a military family home so they can plan their trip! Please be cautious when donating your funds.
